View of Transit of Venus through clouds

Lunar Eclipse December 10, 2011      

Arrangements were made to show the eclipsed moon through telescopes. Over 1500 visitors viewed the moon although there were clouds during 7:30 and 8:30pm. A 2-minute video on lunar eclipse, a large poster explaining the colour of moon were shown along with the explanation with a 3D model. The meaning of umbra and penumbra also were explained by student volunteers. Here are some shots of the event
